We will read some fun books about ducks this week as we learn to write a summary of the stories we read.


In writing, students will write their own version of one of my all time favorite books: Duck on a Bike by David Shannon.


Math

This will be our final week to learn about money. This week we will practice exchanging coins, making change, and counting small collections of coins. Students will also learn some important lessons about financial literacy.

**PLEASE practice identifying the coins and their values, as well as counting a small collection of coins at home!


Science

We will discover the natural diversity found in Texas as we learn about landforms and bodies of water in our state. At the end of the week we will study Texas heroes like Stephen F. Austin, Davy Crockett, and Sam Houston. Remember the Alamo!!
